Transmitter glutamate/aspartate synthesis is known to proceed along different metabolic pathways. In this light, the functional relevance of glutamate dehydrogenase in postnatally maturing glutamatergic/aspartatergic structures was studied by means of quantitative enzyme histochemistry. The basic requirements concerning the kinetics and calibration of the… (More)
We trace the history of medical pluralism in Germany from the perspective of a clinically oriented medical anthropology. The continuation of naturopathic medicine in both formal and informal health care illumines fundamental epistemological issues. Cultural and social forces in Germany shaped the scientific and technical development of medicine, which… (More)
This demonstration will present a radio testbed that is being used to characterize the quality of directional peer-to-peer wireless communications in wilderness environments.
Using a special tetrazolium salt technique, a striking correlation was observed between Na+ concentration of the incubation medium and the activity of glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) in glutamatergic neuropil areas of the hippocampal formation, cerebellum, and other brain regions. Na+ concentration of 130 to 150 mmol/l caused maximal formazan production. The… (More)
